Sanders is the only one who cares about Puerto Ricans. Clinton cares about Puerto Rico's resources as Bernie would say the difference is YUUGE!!

Mr. Sanders, as a puerto rican living on the island I fully agree with you. The reason why we are not leading in such things is because our shitty government doesn't give a shit. The electrical energy authority of our island complains about spending money on something else because they are making money on oil and they just want money for themselves. Also, petitions have been made to widen or shorten our congress and the people chose to shorten it because there are to many positions for such a small island (which is also a reason for our economy no going up), they reviewed it, wiped their asses with it and threw it in the trash. They're the worst. The congress should be restructured with shorten the positions. It should be 1 mayor for every district (Between 10 or 12) and the governor (Maximum 13 legislative seats). It should be made illegal to receive private donations from corporations, and only public donations from the people. There are so many things that are sucking away the tax money we pay and is not being used correctly that if used correctly we could have decent education in public schools and universities, the dept could actually being paid (even if it's at a slow rate) the opportunities are endless.

So Puerto Rico runs up bills and borrows like there is no end and it is the people who lent them the money who are at fault? Only in a moron Marxist/Socialist Sander's world!
Beachbug1vw (2 года назад)
+swiffxgvd What? What are you asking? Did you make up something in your mind? I never said that he said anything! Only a Socialist Nut Job would blame the people who loaned money to the Govt and then get all uppity when those same institutions expect it to be payed back! Clearly you know zero about the idiots who run the Govt of Puerto Rico!

To think Bernie's been battling against corruption and perverse corporate interests for decades with the same level of tenacity shown is a testament to his integrity and respect to the american people whom he represents. I have to admit, I don't know if I could do that, but that is exactly why he should be president. #feelthebern

You can feel the emotion in Bernie's voice when he talks about things like this... this man deserves to be president and have his chance.

Bernie.I am worried that you want to be President of USA and don't know anything about the economics and effect of taxes.  Unemployment was caused by two factors: 1st  was the termination of section 936 in the tax code.2nd was the minimum wage increases. Bernombies (The people support your dream) are just as freaking clueless as you.
jumpman1306 (2 года назад)
+Sergio Marron Oh my bad I thought you were talking about the U.S.
Sergio Marron (2 года назад)
1st....The video was speaking of Puerto Rico. And 2nd....You shouldn't be surprised that wages have fallen since the US dollar was no longer pegged to Gold. i wonder if you even know about Federal Reserve Notes?
jumpman1306 (2 года назад)
Minimum wage has nothing to do with the current situation in the U.S. Wages have nearly stagnated since the 70s and the minimum wage needs to be raised to keep up with inflation.

How is that high minimum wage working out for Puerto Rico? Don't worry, the USA...YES the tax payers...the people with JOBs will work twice as hard to pay for the BUMS in Puerto Rico. THANK YOU MR. SANDERS FOR SPONSORING LEGISLATION TO TAX THE EVER LOVING SHIT OUT OF EVER AMERICAN TO PAY FOR THE MISTAKES OF THE IDIOTS OF PUERTO RICO!!
Christopher Gillman (2 года назад)
+ThisIsTurok1 - Have you learned anything in this past week? His plan to raise minimum wage has been thought through. He's not the president, so everything so far has been done under OTHER people. He's running so he can do it THE RIGHT WAY. Duh.

Graphene supercapacitors. Make them affordable to mass produce—research a way to do that. Then replace the lithium-ion batteries in electric cars with graphene supercapacitors. Why? Because they recharge quicker, that’s why. A lot quicker. Right now, you want to recharge your Tesla Model S in 120 volt socket you’re looking at 43 hours worth of charge time just to get 250 miles of driving out of it (a little more than 1 tank of gas with a 4 cylinder—about a tank and a half). And that’s WAY too much recharge time for the average commuter. But now get it down to 5 minutes and you profoundly reduce our dependency on Mideast oil. Miracle. Changes the whole character of American foreign policy overnight.

+Peter Lettkeman VIVA SOCIALISM and part of capitalism. Of course, not only the rich is the blame but I think that almost everybody.
Peter Lettkeman (2 года назад)
+BryceStawski You do realize that the gov't of Puerto Rico are the ones to blame right? Here is a great analysis of the above video. Bottom line is, if I lend you money and you don't pay it back how is that my fault and not yours? You defaulted on paying ME back. Lawrence Reed 8 hrs · This man is a life-long, unproductive airhead who seems incapable of rational thought. Yesterday, he elaborated on the subject of this brief clip from six months ago, blaming "Wall Street" for wanting to inflict "austerity" on Puerto Rico. What's wrong with that analysis? 1) By "Wall Street," he means anybody who loaned money to Puerto Rico by buying its government bonds. He wants you to think that's just a handful of evil rich people but in fact, it includes individuals of many income levels who purchased P.R. bonds either personally or through their pension funds. But of course, it's easier to vilify "Wall Street." 2) What is the crime here that Sanders is alleging? It's nothing more than expecting the bond issuer (the P.R. gov't) to keep its promises and pay back the money it borrowed. Sanders is demonizing people who gave P.R. their money on terms the P.R. government itself agreed to. 3) Sanders assumes that the P.R. government, simply because it is government, can't be at fault here. He not only doesn't blame its reckless spending and interventionist policies that have caused the crisis, he never mentions that at all. He wants even more of it. 4) He wraps his angry demonizing in language about "the poor Puerto Rican people" so you'll think he's just a nice, compassionate guy while he advocates ripping off people who tried to help Puerto Rico by loaning it money (I'll bet he himself never gave or loaned Puerto Rico a nickel of his own. And in fact, he voted many times to price poor Puerto Ricans out of their jobs through minimum wage hikes). 5) He wants American taxpayers to bail out Puerto Rico, as if your grandmother in Peoria had something to do with the problem. A $19 trillion debt just isn't big enough for him. Now we're supposed to throw even more money down the drain by subsidizing left-wing failures in the Caribbean. Bottom line: Sanders advocates theft in the name of compassion. He refuses to hold government responsible for its own economic crimes. He is full of hate for successful people. He's a hypocrite and snake oil salesman selling the prescription for human misery called "socialism." Pathetic. Truly pathetic.

From Canada...up and at 'em, Bernie! The socially conscience of the world have your back at home and abroad by now, yes? Surely! BTW, was tremendously proud of you in the televised debate; thank you. Now Canada finally knows who I mean when I speak of your integrity to speak truth to power. Had been hoping and optimistic about seeing you the head there with Mulcair here and really expose the rot everywhere by investments into cleaning up what must be done for the survival of our Planet.

MyExSuPeRGF (2 года назад)
+yuubokumin415 , Our local government regardless of which administration are on the cronies payroll. Lot's of lobbying are keeping our lawmakers pretty much in their back pockets. Any legislation is inherently benefiting solely big money. People are too busy spending money at the mall or watching too much sports or too much drama on t.v. Then they spend 1 hour calling a radio station to complain or troll on social media about how shitty the local government is. After that they carry on with the rest of day !! We are really the masters of the oblivious when it comes to macro/micro economics and politics... kinda like in the rest of USA...
